Evergreen Sandwich Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt

Filling
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
4-1/2 teaspoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Green paste food coloring

Glaze
1-1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
4 teaspoons milk
Green paste food coloring
Green colored sugar

In a mixing bowl, combine the butter, flour, milk and salt; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1-1/2 hours or until easy to handle.

Divide dough into thirds. On a floured surface, roll out each portion to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a 3-3/4-in. Christmas tree cookie cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Prick each with a fork several times. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-11 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks.

For filling, in a mixing bowl, cream shortening, butter and confectioners' sugar. Add milk and vanilla. Tint with food coloring. Spread about a tablespoon each over half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies.

For glaze, combine confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth; set aside 1/4 cup. Stir food coloring into remaining glaze; spread a thin layer over cooled cookies. If desired, sprinkle tops of half of the cookies with colored sugar. Let stand until set. Pipe garland onto half of the cookies with reserved glaze. Let stand until set. Makes about 2 dozen.
